Life, distanced from reality

Some models are chosen to fit the concept, and some concepts are born of the model. The latter is when model transcends into muse. Inspired by Lorena, his model and muse on this shoot, Pierre Dal Corso set out to create something sexual but with a sophisticated distance; to capture the ‘animal thing’ possessed by her.

We see Lorena’s naked skin, strong features, deep eyes, yet we’re still at a distance. Not a physical distance but a logical one – as if she’s a subject we’re viewing from behind glass. The glossy, waxy quality of her skin isn’t accidental, it’s Dal Corso’s way of keeping a barrier between Lorena and reality. She’s almost a wax doll, a statue.

Like the taxidermy props that populate the shoot, Lorena, the feeling of being removed from reality, and the very concept of photographs themselves, represent the beauty of life suspended in time.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
